The pros are: hotel is clean, looks new, and has a very good location. In the other hand, they offer a double room as triple, so you don't get any empty space for your suit cases in the room, also the toilet has a glass door, so if you are 3 people and if you are not a sultan (multiple... More

This was a nice hotel with excellent staff. Having breakfast on the terrace was wonderful - looking out over the Bosphorous, the two main Mosques and just relaxing. Refreshing and light breakfast with terrific coffee. It was also nice to just go up to the terrace at night at look at the Blue Mosque lit up and the shipping traffic... More

This place is not flash, but if you are looking for a decent place to stay with good location then check this place out. The hotel itself is very small and seems a little old, but everything worked fine so we couldn't complain. The main positives is the location as its very close to the Blue Mosque and the main...

We took two rooms in the Tan Hotel for a 4 night stay in wonderful Instanbul. Based on the many 4 and 5 ratings on Tripadvisor we had high expectations, but to be honest we were a little disappointed. The hotel is best described as "worn". Our rooms were clean, reasonably comfortable, but a little dark and drab. In fact... More

First, location is fantastic. Staff is generally kind and helpful. Breakfast on terrace was wonderful way to start the day. Overall, our room, a suite with separate bedroom, was good, pretty clean (but see below), and nice bathroom. The tub was nice to have since every other place we stayed on this trip had just a shower stall. I would... More

Great location, walking distance to all major sights. Nice helpful staff. Rooms were comfortable enough. Renovations going on next door but the call to prayer will probably wake you anyway. Rooftop terrace (breakfast room location) was available for guests’ use throughout the day. Nice spot for a drink with views of the Blue Mosque.

My son and I stayed at the Tan Hotel in May 2014 and found the location, the ambiance, and the courtliness and helpfulness of Ufuk and Kaan so inviting. They did all they could to assist us in restaurant and show reservations, cab to airport, and local information. We highly recommend the Tan Hotel!
